• This is the only chrome logo I could ever get behind. [Kings]

• The Senators will "do something" to honor Daniel Alfredsson on December 1. My guess: they invite him to prom, name him homecoming queen, and then, right when he's finally feeling confident about himself -- bam. They hit him with the bucket of animal blood perched in the rafters of the Canadian Tire Centre. [Ottawa Sun]

• Speaking of the Senators, does Milan Michalek has a future with them? [TSN]

• Ex-enforcer Stu Grimson makes the case for fighting. [Sports Illustrated]

• Pat LaFontaine has taken a pretty difficult job, especially considering he had to tell Terry Pegula he wasn't ready to be a GM when the Sabres' owner offered him that job last week. [Sportsnet]

• Ted Nolan's goal for game one: learn his players' names. “I’ve been so focused on what I have to do. I even got the pictures of guys to put them in line combinations so I know who they are. I was more nervous on that, getting to know the guy’s name, more so than the than the game itself." Remember, Ted: It's Zemgus. Zemgus. [Buffalo Hockey Beat]

• Under-discussed story: with Craig Berube and Ted Nolan behind NHL benches, this is the first time the league has had two First Nation coaches. [Color of Hockey]

• The Blackhawks have recovered Kris Versteeg, who was found wandering the streets of Florida, looking for meaning. What's the fantasy impact? [Dobber Hockey]

• Sean Gentille on the Versteeg trade. In summary: go home, Dale Tallon. [Sporting News]

• It drives me insane that Team Canada might not have P.K. Subban on it. I love you, Canada, but sometimes I don't like you. [Yahoo]

• Remember that BCHL player who punched a linesman in the face? He will face no punishment. It is open season on linesmen. [Global News]

• The Canada vs. Russia Subway Super Series kicks off next week. They need to change the format of this thing. [Buzzing the Net]

• Karl Alzner explains his Hulk Hogan-esque win celebration. [RMNB]

• Team USA looks to be a formidable group at the Sochi Olympics, but where's the top-end talent? [Greatest Hockey Legends]

• Michael Cammalleri is on fire. He's got 8 goals in his last 11 games. Pro-tip for Jay Feaster: sell high this time. I know, it's a crazy thought. But imagine, for a second, a world where you trade a top-flight player and get, like, another good player back. [Flames Nation]

• Evander Kane trade rumors continue to swirl. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

• The Vancouver Canucks have signed Eddie Lack to a two-year, $2.3 million contract extension. [Canucks]

• In praise of the Capitals' other top line: Mikhail Grabovski, Jason Chimera, and Joel Ward. [Japers Rink]

• Panini America, the trading card company that sounds like a sandwich company, takes you inside the making of an NHL rookie card.
